Actually if you lot are going to meet this week, can someone do me a favour, on the gloucester bound side, not too far from the Pheasant (after the pub on this side of the road) there is what i KNOW to be a 5 series GTE in someones garden with what appears to be gold P.A wheels, been meaning to get the damn registration off it for ages but keep forgetting, only getting the idea again when the "94 Gold" bus flies past it

Taking action instead of words, I will be in the Pheasant at 7pm this Tuesday reading a clasic car mag and supping a pint of Lager shandy (driving). If no-one else can make it I will go about 8pm and hope to arrange a firmer meeting to restart a local Noggin at a later date. That's Tuesday 3rd May 7pm and don't be put off if you do not see a yellow GTE or green SS1 outside as both are currently off the road. Just marvel at my modern Mitsubishi Colt! Anyone need directions?

sorry - looked at 15 houses in 2 days and talked to 2 mortgage advisors, 3 building companies & 2 estate agents, so didn't have time to think about a noggin! Had our Somerset noggin last night - hopefully 2 or 3 more here, then moving?

There are 2 threads on this Noggin revival. Any response would be appreciated as I am making the effort to meet up albeit as a one off at present. There are a number of Members up and down the M5 and the Pheasant is is only half a mile from junction 11. If you have used any other thread for posting a response please let me know.

Would you believe it, the Pheasant has closed down. Got there 7pm and it immediately looked overgrown and dark. Wasted only 30 minutes of my life trying this venue so not defeated yet. Ideas gratefully received.

Hmmn, im thinking...... im by the old Vauxhall garage on fairview road/winchcombe street junction in cheltenham....we need a pub thats semi close to the M5 yet big enough for us all to get there...

There are a few options, the Harvester at the Cattle market in Gloucester.....The Greyhound? At the bottom of longlevens by the A40 dual carriageway towards Cheltenham..... Toby Carvery at Brockworth,

Victor...anything Shurdington way? Thats pretty close to M5 territory...

That is the place known as the Cross Hands, being as it is, on the Cross Hands roundabout. Was a superb restaurant when it was independant with a proper dessert trolley etc.

How about the Air Balloon on Birdlip Hill. All roads leading there are fun and it is 5 mins from M5 junction 11a.

I've been there once, but it was just before Charlie was born and was quite packed for a weekday! Either way I think a noggin may be easy to start, but to keep er runnin will be the hard part!
